    Hello:
    does anyone know how to change recoil pads on a morgan adjustable plate. I do not like the two different pads that come with the morgan plates. i would like to put different companies recoil pad on these plates and still have the option to allow the pad to move up and down. at the wisconsin state shoot a few years ago, the gunsmith that is always on the grounds each year, had placed a terminator pad on a morgan. i never looked to see how he did it.

    SECOND QUESTION- a friend of mine has a new in the box jenkins recoil pad. it is green and yellow. another trapshooter out at the waukesha gun club told me the jenkins pad was not well liked, and i should throw it out. was the jenkins pad, a good pad or not?
    thanks,
    steve balistreri

    Your friend probably wants you to throw the Jenkins pad in his direction. I had a Jenkins on a Mod. 12 many years ago and liked it very much. I still have 2 or 3 laying around somewhere. The way they were curved made them mount in the same place every time. Sorry but I can't help you with your Morgan pad interchange question, although I have the regular Morgans on several guns and like them very much also. Larry Evans

    Larry made a very fair offer for the Jenkins pad. I would suspect that the Jenkins pad is one of the re-runs made around 1980 and not one of the original pads made in the late 1930's to about 1950. A Jenkins pad on a M-12 brings back many memories.

    Bill Jenkins had the molds used by his father and uncle (Jenkins brothers, both in the ATA H of F) to make the original Jenkins pads. Around 1980, Bill allowed someone (I forgot who) to use the molds and bring back the Jenkins pads. That business only lasted a few years. I have no idea where the molds are now and Bill died several years ago.
